Am I To Blame

A simple hug or a kiss, that would
have been enough;
to make me feel deserving,
of any type of love.

I've never received her affection, for
her heart she kept to herself;
and the emptiness and pain it caused, to
this day can still be felt.

During my childhood years, and even
now as an adult;
I blame myself for her lack of
love, as if it were my fault.

Yet I still remember my anger,
directed completely her way;
for in my Mother's eyes, I was
a mistake that she had made.

Yet throughout the years of my
childhood, and even to this very day;
I feel as if it were all my fault,
that I brought my Mother such shame.
